Perfect Lake house on a beautiful lake.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Peter and Kathryn for opening your home to us. It was great making family memories on Lake Champlain in the perfect house, you thought of everything. The house is very clean with ac on the street level. The lower level had fans. Peter was very helpful and easy to contact not that we needed to call him.

We arrived on Monday; which at first I wasn't sure about the Monday to Monday rental but traffic was lighter and you get a full weekend. I did not leave the house until we were leaving the following Monday. Our 2 sons with their families came and some of my in-laws came. The age range was 4 months to 75 years old. The house is great with plenty of room. My two granddaughters age 2 and 3 loved playing in the sand and the lake and sitting in the boats on the shore. The lake is very clean and safe for the kids. My grandson 8 years old loved playing out in the water on the trampoline. My son brought his jetski which he was out on almost all day. The lake is nice that it is not busy with a lot of boats.

My son and daughter-in-law with the 4 month old had the master bedroom with their own bathroom. The bunkbed room and the other bedroom on the same level as the master bedroom shared the other bathroom on that floor. Downstairs the two bedrooms shared a huge bathroom with big glass shower and very nice washer and dryer. The shower is so big that I showered up my 2 granddaughters with me in the shower with them.(in my bathing suit). We brought beach towels but really did not have to. There were plenty of towels. The deck off the living room is great but it does get very hot during the day so we eat under the deck that has a very large table to fit everyone and much cooler. We used everything the fire pit, the hot tub, the popcorn machine, the flavored slush maker, loads of sand toys, the paddle boat, the kayaks, game table, games, the trampoline. Each night my grandson loved trying out something else.

The only negative thing I would say is the bedroom on the street level has a full size bed not a queen bed.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We parked our car on Monday morning and didn't leave until we checked out on Friday! The lake was amazing and the kids were on the trampoline the whole time. We took bike rides up to the point every morning and walked up to the marina for dinner. This house had everything you needed and the owners were easy to communicate with. We will book this house again!

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, comfortable home matched only by the spectacular setting. Great porches with beautiful views, perfect for the early morning cup of coffee and star watching at night. Great sandy beach with fun equipment for all ages. Large yard with fire pit. There were 10 of us and we had plenty of space for everyone. We had gorgeous weather so didn't spend much time indoors but there were two huge flat screen TVs, wifi, lots of games and a game table. The owners haven't missed a thing, and they were a pleasure to deal with. And Lake Champlain is just beautiful. We're already planning our return next year!

Truly Fabulous !!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many wonderful things to say about this house, the property, and the location that it is nearly impossible to do so in a few short sentences. The owners have created something very special. Most notably, the house was extremely clean and well maintained, catering to convenience & comfort, it included all of the amenities (& more) that a family or group of vacationers could possibly need (hot tub, fire pit, private sandy beach, boats & kayak, water trampoline, plentiful & comfortable seating & tables, grill, ample bedding & baths, TV & games etc...). Everything from the interior layout to the bright and cheerful furnishings to the accessibility of the lake and the various property features, this rental is very conducive to a relaxing or adventurous vacation (or both). Also, the proximity to the magnificent mountains, lakes and other features of the Adirondack region make it ideal. Most of all, the view across the lake was simply spectacular. We found it difficult to leave and look forward to returning again next summer.

Great House, Great location

  • 5 of 5

This house fit the needs of our family perfectly. Two porches, a hot tub, a grill, two bathrooms, 3 boats, a paddle boat and a trampoline float. There is a restaurant within walking distance and a store a couple miles into town. The views are spectacular and the setting serene. Clean and comfortable with games, a fire pit with wood and it really was a great place. Highly recommended

Just relax!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was one of the best times my family has had in a very long time. The cottage is so clean and comfortable. We were right at home as soon as we walked in the door. The views from the house are spectacular overlooking something lake Champlain. The kids had the time of their life. We will definitely be returning time after time. A beautiful place anyone would enjoy!
